Toyota Wins Recent Wrongful Death Lawsuit Over Acceleration Issues

Do You Need a Divorce Checklist?It was recently announced that Toyota was found to be not responsible in a wrongful death lawsuit, one of the first to go on trial in America over alleged issues with that caused some vehicles to accelerate unexpectedly. Should you ever need the help of a licensed McKinney injury lawyer, Lucé Law, PC is here to provide you with experienced counsel.

Acceleration Issues

The wrongful death lawsuit was brought by Noriko Uno’s husband and son after she was involved in a fatal car crash while driving her 2006 Toyota Camry. The lawsuit states that Uno was driving in her Camry when she was hit by another automobile, which caused her vehicle to speed out of control until it struck a tree and killed Uno.

The case is quite similar to hundreds of other suits brought against Toyota involving acceleration problems, which is the reason the automobile manufacturer has recalled millions of their vehicles since the year 2009. With this particular case, Uno’s vehicle was not one that involved in the recall.

Brake-Override Systems

In Uno’s lawsuit, her husband and son are accusing Toyota of neglecting to install a brake-override system in their automobiles, which could possibly stop any vehicles that accelerate out of control in America. Hers is the first case that will go on trial in the state of California for acceleration issues.
